Meet Your Friendly Dental Team – Gahanna, OH
Get to Know the Friendly Faces Around Our Dental Office
Our team is what really makes our dental office special. They’re friendly, approachable, and their ultimate dream is to make our dental office similar to “Cheers.” We don’t like working in a stuffy, sterile environment as much as you don’t like coming to one. Of course, just because they’re fun doesn’t mean they aren’t a truly dedicated team of professionals. They’ll be there during your entire visit with a warm smile to make sure you have everything you need before, during, and after your appointment.

Kenzie, Office Mascot & Honorary Team Member
Kenzie has been with Dr. Clay and Dr. Buller since they were in dental school together, so they like to say that she practically attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry just like them! A retired professional squirrel chaser, she now spends her days snoozing, eating (she loves cleaning the kitchen after pizza day), and exploring the river and woods near her home (lots of smells). She lives just half a mile from her favorite park and knows the way there by heart. Usually, her biggest decision each day comes down to choosing between two big, comfy beds to sleep in.
